Behavioral economics is the study of how people make decisions. It is an active research field, drawing together people from psychology, economics, political science, and management, among other fields. Economic theory is based on the idea that economic agents are rational and investigates the implications of such rational behavior. Empirical research revealed discrepancies between derived “optimal” strategies, and the actual behavior of decision makers. Based on these empirical findings, behavioral economics questions the assumption of perfect rationality and uses insights from psychology to improve theoretical and empirical predictions of standard economic theory.
